Sears to Rid Itself of Orchard Supply Hardware

Share this content:
Sears Holdings Corp. intends to part ways with its Orchard Supply Hardware business, Sears reported yesterday.


Orchard Supply Hardware consists of a chain of hardware and garden supply stores throughout California and a Web site, osh.com.


In a move intended to help Sears focus on its core business, the multichannel retailer said yesterday that it will pursue strategic alternatives for the separation of Orchard Supply Hardware that could include a sale of the business or initial public offering.


"Sears Holdings is focusing its management attention and capital on the opportunities in our core business presented by the merger of Sears and Kmart," Sears vice chairman/CEO Alan J. Lacy said in a statement.


Sears Holdings Corp. is the new company formed by the merger of Sears, Roebuck & Co. and Kmart Holding Corp. The $12.3 billion deal created the nation's third-largest retailer behind Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and The Home Depot Inc. The new mega-retailer began trading on the Nasdaq in March.
